The California Naturalist Program would like to thank the Wildlife Conservation Board and the Renewable Resources Extension Act for funding the development of the program including this website. We would also like to thank the Pepperwood Preserve and Santa Rosa Junior College for their collaboration in piloting our program.
Thank you to Kerry Heise and Greg Damron for sharing their beautiful photos.
Finally, we would like to vociferously thank the people at the Minnesota Master Naturalist program, who have been so generous. They shared their time, material and lessons learned, which has made our job easier.
